Japan's economy is poised for positive surprises in 2016/17 and beyond. The base for private sector innovation is broad and deep; corporate leadership is now focused on raising productivity and global competitiveness; and public policy is dictated by a strong pro-business and pro-entrepreneurship philosophy. Learn how demographic destiny is not a negative but a powerful positive force for both domestic demand and innovation; why public debt, central bank action and the negative savings rate combine to create unprecedented industrial and corporate change; where your company can profit from Japan's structural up-turn; and what forces could disrupt and delay Japan's potential for prosperity.
